Carlos Gonzalez #5
Since the All-Star break, the Colorado Rockies have the best record in the Majors, 14-5, and that surge has coincided with the current 15-game hitting streak star outfielder Carlos Gonzalez is in the midst of. Gonzalez homered in back-to-back innings, the fifth and sixth, to open up and help his Rockies cement a 12-2 win over the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers.
QUOTE: "We didn't go into the break with a great feeling, but I feel really good about the way the guys regrouped and came out of the break with a sense of urgency. We talked about playing every game like it's Game 7, and that?s where we're at," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.
FACT: Gonzalez won the National League batting title in 2010 with a .336 average.
